Major Gifts

A major gift ($25,000 or more) gives you the chance to make a profound difference in the lives of children and their families and to meet other dedicated donors and physicians working toward the same goal.

As you consider how to designate your major gift, our staff is here to assist. We can help you explore how your generosity can speed research from the laboratory to the bedside, train tomorrow’s physicians, purchase leading-edge pediatric equipment and further enhance care to improve outcomes so children can enjoy happier, healthier lives.
